Yes, they’ve done it again: M.I.A and her protege Rye Rye have created another immense track – Sunshine. It’s a lovely follow up to their previous collab, Bang. M.I.A’s new album is crazy good, she’s slowly creeping onto my most-played list. And I’m telling you, she’s gonna creep onto yours as well. Just you wait; take my word for it.
One of the artists I have recently found to add to my never ending itunes playlists is Rye Rye. M.I.A discovered her after overhearing Rye Rye in a studio, M.I.A signed her and made her her own little protege. Her new album Go! Pop! Bang! was supposed to come out in 2009 but we’re still waiting. Most of her songs are upbeat and are quite reminiscent of M.I.A’s own music. On this new album she’s collaborated with M.I.A (obviously) in Bang, Blaqstarr for Move To The Ground and appears on quite a few M.I.A remixes. I think I especially love her rapping, it’s quick and her fairly strong Baltimore accent makes it sound especially different. Have a listen and drop us a comment.
